We couldn’t do it without you! Thank You!

The Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library salutes our dedicated volunteers and volunteens who help the Library in many ways.  Some come weekly; some seasonally; and some help annually on special projects. From shelving books to reframing artwork, the many hours our volunteers generously give support to the Library and their efforts contribute to making the Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library a success.

The Library could not offer the many services and programs we have throughout the year without the help of many hands. When you meet a Library volunteer or volunteen, say a big “thank you” for making the Library a vital part of the community. We could not do it without them.

The Library is always looking for volunteers. If you have a few hours a week or a month and would like to be part of a community group, contact the Library Director, at 978-526-2011 or Head of Adult Services, at 978-526-2017. Teens can call the Head of Youth Services, at 978-526-2016.
